NEW – EAST KENT HUNT PC Participation in National PC Championships  2015

Roz  would like to say how very proud we all are to have had 15 members representing our branch this summer at Bishop Burton (Tetratrathlon) and then Cholmondeley Castle (Show Jumping and Mounted Games).This is such a major achievement for these members, who were competing with other branches from England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland. These events were extremely competitive and of a very high standard.Thanks to all these members for performing so well and their families for taking the time and effort to support them.

Well done and best wishes Roz Bacon
